Thank you Top China Travel for a fabulous visit to your wonderful country.
I was apprehensive about visiting China, but thoroughly enjoyed our travels if this beautiful country.
What made the trip was having a guide in 4 of the 5 cities we visited.
Our guides meet us at the airport, took us to our accommodation, picked us up for our daily activities, returned us back to our accommodation and made invaluable recommendations for our evenings. Then made sure we not only got back to the airports, but ensured we had the right terminals, flights and saw is right through to customs.
Having a guide made sure we went to the best sights, at the best times to avoid the queues, getting tickets in advance, making sure we got the best photo opportunities in the best places. And all with informative information about sights and history. 
If we had tried to see what we saw on our own, we would have missed so much and spent a long time trying to find it all.
Thank you to Jeremy in Guilin. It was great to get out into the country side and see the hard working farmers tendering their crops, and witness up close the celebration of families remembering their departed families.
To Linda in Beijing. Your warm manner as you taught us about the history of your country, and accepting the challenges of walking the steepest section of the wall with us. Thank you.
Olivia in Xian, the Terra Cotta soldiers was awesome and your making sure we went to government stores so we we're not ripped off, when we brought a soldier and tea.
And Summer in Zhangjiajie, the glass bridge, the glass pathway on the side of the stairway to heaven and your lovely singing. Thank-you for a wonderful tour.
Our guides made our visit to China, a wonderful holiday, thank you all. We wish you well for your futures.
Kind regards from Leah, Angus, Cameron, Maree and Todd

I used TCT to book a tailor-made 5 day tour of Yunnan for a small family group consisting of two couples of 60+ and 3 in their 30s. In the planning stage- conducted by email - their local rep Daniel Mo was extremely professional, helpful and very prompt in his replies. In the event, all the arrangements worked very smoothly. All three guides we encountered were also very professional, attentive and very supportive. We were in Yunnan for a wedding and added this short tour at the end of our trip. Time was limited so we could only see a bit of Kunming and then a few days in Lijiang but this in addition to the 5 days we spent down near the border with Myanmar made us fall in love with Yunnan. Lijiang in particular is a joy. Do go to the Impressions show as well as Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

My wife and I booked a private tour with Top China Travel for 6 days , From the outset the help we got from TCT was first class and Joyce our representative in China answered all our questions and tailored the tour accordingly . On arrival at Beijing airport the guide Venus and driver Mr Howe were there to meet us and take us to our very comfortable hotel which TCT had arranged. The second day we visited the Great Wall which was fantastic. Neil the guide for this trip was knowledgeable and very informative and later in the day we wandered around the beautiful Summer Palace at leisure. The Forbidden City with Venus our lovely guide was incredible as was meeting local people in the Hutong and market. A trip to Xi An to see the Terracotta Warriers taking the bullet train from Beijing was incredible travelling at 306 kilometres an hour. Comfortable and spotless taking just 4hr 20min to cover 1,200 Kms . Again when we arrived in Xi An station our guide Vincy and the driver Mr Toa were there to meet us and take us to our hotel. The next morning our car driver and guide took us to the Buddhist Pagoda in Xi An the first to be built in China, Very Interesting and so peaceful. The terracotta warriors were incredible, a massive site with five pits. We cannot thank Top China Tours enough for helping us to have an experience of a life time and we recommend them unreservedly.

It's been a few months since I finished our 11 days (23 Dec-3Jan) private China tour arranged by Janet Chan from Top China Travel. The trip consists of the following cities: Beijing - Hangzhou - Suzhou - Shanghai - Guilin - Hongkong. I really need to thank Janet for her patience towards the schedule changes and all of my custom requests for driver transfer to dinner etc, and even for restaurants booking. In addition, I also found their price to be the best compared with the other competitor. All of our local guides (Sunny in Beijing, Summer in Hangzhou, Isaac in Suzhou, Ryan in Shanghai, and Jay in Guilin) were all helpful, flexible, and very accomodating. They even explained in both english and chinese since my parents can't understand english. They even add some objects here and there so that we can enjoy most of our time in China. They also recommend all of good restaurants in each city. All of them were really good, we even had the best porridge and liu sha bao while we were in Guilin.. Overall, we really enjoyed our time in China, and I didn't expect the trip would be so easy with TCT. Once again, thanks Janet Chan who enables us to make the most of our holiday. Can't wait to plan another trip to China with TCT.

The Top China Travel organised for 40 persons a tour in Guilin, Beijing, Xi'an area and especially in Gansu province. All things e.g. transport (flight, train tickets, bus) accommodation and guide service was professional, also in the remote area of Badain Jaran Desert or Qilian Mountain in Gansu province where organisation of the trip for a big group is not always easy. Months of contact with TCT office (responsible Janet Chan) was professional, reliable and always fast so all details were clear before the group departure. During the trip the the guide/office work was also excellent which is important for big groups (but also for small groups or family). The trip was without major problems. The smaller one, which always can happen, was resolved fast by the TCT (Janet Chan). That proves the high quality of the Tour Operator. I can recommend Top China Travel as an reliable Tour Operator for groups or individual travellers to organise a tour in most known China tourist spot but also to more remote areas. Maciej

Tour developer Yocky and tour guide Leo did a great job introducing me to these 2 cities. I loved the Acrobatic Show and also the night boat ride on the Huangpu. The skyline of Shanghai is a riot of color and movement at night! And the gardens! Leo's English was very clear and easy to understand. I also appreciated his willingness to "open up" and tell me a little bit about his family, his life,his history, his routine. I would recommend a private tour with a guide and driver and if you're in Shanghai ask for Leo to be your guide!

Just returned from two weeks of travel through China set up by Rebecca at Top China Travel. Absolutely perfect experience. In each city our guides and drivers were the best! Started in Beijing, then Xian, Yangtze River Cruise, Wuhan and Shanghai. In each city a university educated tour guide was waiting for us full of local history and information. Additional evening attractions like Beijing Opera and Tang Dynasty Show were perfect. She set up a cooking lesson for us with a private family in Beijing that was the best. Each and every one of our requests were honored and planned specifically for us. A special trip to Wuhan, off the normal tourist path was delightful. We finished the trip with a visit to Shanghai Disney. So thankful to this organization for the trip of a lifetime.

We still can't believe that we've spent 11 days of dream in China, organized for us by TCT Guilin. The pick ups at the different airports went without a hitch. our guides were warm and so friendly, although a few were quite busy with their IPhone. The hotels recommended were outstanding. The breakfast at The Marriott were excellent. The terra cotta army in Xian is a marvel. The dumpling banquet in Xian was somewhat below our expectations though. The cruise on the Yang Tse river, a once in a lifetime experience though a bit too short. Don t hesitate to upgrade to the suite on the Victoria cruises (Victoria Selena), you won't regret it, a panoramic view of breath taking intensity....quite interesting shore excursions, they are worth the money. We would hesitate one second to book another and longer trip with TCT Guilin.

The country is beautiful and glamorous from the inside and the outside. Including the people. Special thanks to our tour guide,LILY who made our trip memorable She planned everything from our our tickets to our food and shopping. Her service was excellent just like her behaviour. We had a misfortune of losing three newly bought phones. Even though we couldn't get the phones back lilly helped us through all the procedure from the police station to the street cc tv. And the lunch she provided us today in front of the great wall was perfect and elegant. Thank you for everything lilly. Hope we get you the next time we visit china again. And visit my country bangladesh anytime you like with your daughter and husband :)

We hired TCT as a private guide with car for travel to Beijing, Shanghai and Huanzhou. TCT prepared the day-by-day program, booked first class hotels and train tickets and arranged for very good English speaking guides, among them Cathy in Beijing was amamzing. The cars were veryy good, the drivers were diriving very well but carefully. The program was followed with a very high degree of precision and the guides and drivers allowed also for flexibility. We enjoyed the trip very much and also very much appreciated the services provided bt TCT. The attractions included were paid in advance.

We generally do not use tours when we travel. In fact, I normally don't enjoy tours at all. However, given the language challenges in China, we looked at several options and eventually settled on Top China Travel. We used TCT in Beijing, Shanghai and Long Ji area. All I can say is that I was blown away by the professionalism and service of each individual guide within each city. Our guide in Beijing was extremely knowledgeable and really gave us an amazing tour of the city. In Shanghai, our children left our IPad on the plane, and the guide volunteered to go get it for us (the airport is 40 min outside of the city). The third and final guide also went far and above what was expected. She stayed with us until the end of each day and we could tell that she really had a passion for sharing the Chinese culture with us. Each city guide provided unique personalities and service and each was in it's own right amazing. Quite honestly, we were initially reluctant to use a Chinese tour operator, but we are so very glad we did. I feel like we lived in China during our two week trip, as opposed to just visiting. This experience was directly related to the exceptional service provided by TCT. I highly recommend this group!

We started out in Beijing and then traveled by fast train and airplanes, visiting Xi'an, Guilin, Yangshou, and finally Shanghai. We saw all the most famous and auspicious sites, scenery and nature and experienced the amazing people and culture of China. Having tour guides and drivers to ourselves made the trip intimate, friendly and provided a rare opportunity to be part of the travel rather than onlookers. Eating lunch with a retired woman in Shanghai in her home was a highlight. This is one of the best trips we have ever taken. Thank you to all our guides and drivers, Janet and Top China Travel.

I can't recommend this company enough!!I started talking to Yocky via the chat system on their website, as we wanted to do a 2.5 week trip around China. Our itinerary was:Shenzhen-Beijing-Xian-Kunming-Dongchuan-Chengdu-Guilin-SanyaHere's how things went:1) She was instant in her replies and responded to subsequent emails within the hour (and trust me, I sent A LOT of emails). She was always so thorough and efficient.2) She made us a tailor made trip that covered everything we wanted, including some slightly more off the beaten track attractions.3) She helped us keep to our budget and suggested reasonable things we could cut out when things were too expensive (not something many companies would do as they are trying to make a quick buck).4) She listened to all of our requests for things such as early morning flights, vegetarian food, and readjusting itineraries.5) All our drivers and guides were EXCELLENT; they were prompt, kind, spoke excellent English and had a wealth of knowledge about all the sites we saw. All the cars on our private tours were nice and comfortable and had water.6) Despite asking for 3* hotels, all 7 hotels we stayed in seemed like 4* to us and all included breakfast.7) With such a large and complicated trip there were bound to be a few hiccups (e.g. there was a marathon in Xian one day which meant a lot of roads were closed, so we couldn't access sites). Yocky was in touch with us the entire time and helped us rearrange our plans quickly and ordered complimentary tickets to a show to make up for the inconvenience.We were so nervous about our first trip to China as we speak no mandarin and are strict vegetarian but honestly this was one of the best trips of our life; this company made it so easy for us and I really can't imagine having been able to do it myself any better!

As a partner for few events in China in a different localisation and with different programs, the TCT represented by Mrs Janet Chan, showed unexpected involvement on all details. Helpful hints, flexibility and many other features ( relations with local subcontractors ) made our business on highest leavel with uncommon feedback....

This area is very nice, they still rice farm these teraces in season.
This is about the 2.5 hour drive up into the mountains 1 way.
There a small Village there that you can have lunch and hike up into the village.
We had a nice soup and hot tea for lunch here in the Village area. Everyone working here lives here, your dollars will help them enjoy their life here in this special area. Locals had a village home open for viewing. If you are interested in the history, local culture and people this wooden architecture is nice. There's a path, small road to wander into the actual village on that's not a hard walk. There are also about 500 stairs on the other side, I did both the stairs are not good for anyone with challenges. No handrails. The homes in the village span up the hillside about 500 meters.If you have time I think this is a nice day in the area. Go during daylight, that man road us very winding. Suggest a local driver and or guide. I love Top China Travel, Rebecca is fantastic she will arrange everything you need in Hong Kong, China for you with no hassles and at great value. Here's an idea, best photos are on my other camera. Getting close to the history and residents is a huge part of real traveling.Show less
